Choose the Best Sandals for Your Wedding Attire

Every part of your wedding attire from your dress down to the wedding sandals, matter. If you already have everything figured out except for the sandals, you might need a bit of help. Here’s a quick read to help you in choosing the right wedding sandals for your big day.  

High Sandals

It’s one of the most common sandals you can find in wedding attire. These expose most of the entire feet, especially the sides. The main purpose of these sandals is it adds a lot of inches for women who want to increase a few inches of their height. And because of how your feet are resting, it can accentuate the muscle tone of a woman’s legs, further complementing the height of the person to appear taller. 

Slingback Sandals

You can tell that a slingback sandal is just another version of a high heeled sandal. However, what makes this type of sandal unique is the strap that crosses behind the wearer’s heel. Don’t be confused with this and an ankle-strap sandal because slingback sandals have straps that only hold the back part of the heel, while the ankle-strap completely straps the entire ankle. Usually, these straps are elastic or have a buckle feature for the wearer to adjust the strap if it’s too loose or tight. 

Open Toe Sandals

As the name suggests, this is a sandal where the toe area is exposed. The sandals usually have a simple strap that travels along the top of the toes. With this strap, fashion designers can create eccentric designs such as multiple rocks glued to the top of the strap to suit the wearer. There are also open-toe sandals with a cover at the back part of the heel to conceal the ankles. 

Flat Sandals

For women who have a tough time wearing high heels, no need to worry because there are also wedding sandals that don’t have medium or high heels. The flat sandals usually add a tiny bit of inches to the heels, ensuring that the wearer’s height remains the same. Although it might look simple, some flat sandals have embellished bands that can be placed with crystals or attractive patterns. 

Some women prefer to wear flat sandals because they don’t like the feeling of tip-toeing around all the time. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing high heels, there’s always block heels for you as another option if you want to add a few inches, and still walk around without a problem. Even though block heels add height, it won’t affect your balance since the heel has a wider area than the stiletto. Not only are the block heels easy to walk around, but it also won’t put too much stress on your entire legs. 

Women are always particular with the outfit that they wear, even more so if they’re attending special events like weddings. Every piece of clothing they wear should be perfect, and one way of achieving that is with the kind sandal they choose. You can always look for all sorts of wedding sandals in many shops. You just have to choose the right one that would fit your wedding attire well, and you’ll be good to go!

How to Organise and Upgrade Your Closet Without Going Heavy on Your Pocket

Styles change. Bodies change. Your favourite dress has been through the wash so many times the colour faded and the holes can no longer be hidden or repaired. Blouses are missing buttons and a bit too tight. Even the at-home comfort wear needs an upgrade every now and again. It can be embarrassing for the unexpected visitor to see the big stain down your sweatshirt. It doesn’t have to be like that. 

Upgrading and organising your wardrobe can seem a daunting task, but it doesn’t need to be. 

Ditch First 

Set aside a quiet afternoon and go through your clothes. Don’t stop there; accessories and shoes also need replacing. 

Anything old and torn can be binned or repurposed; this includes the old sunglasses and bags. What doesn’t fit also needs to go. Sorry, but you won’t fit back into those jeans you last wore twenty years ago. 

Fashion trends can be a bit odd. What was fashionable for all of five minutes in 2015 is just plain hideous now. You are never going to wear that again. You’re embarrassed, even thinking about leaving the house in something so awful. Don’t hang onto your mistake. 

Throw old and unwanted items onto the floor. Separate piles for donating, bin and repurpose. 

Take Stock

With the old and unwanted items bagged and disposed of in one form or another, you can see what you have and don’t have with more ease. All closets need some essential staple items. Shoes, both flats and heels as well as trainers, sandals and boots. Winter and spring coats. At least one dress for every occasion. These are just one of the few items that may have been thrown out. 

Fire Up the Computer

Or tablet. Or smartphone. Shop from the comfort of your bedroom. It is easier than remembering what you need and less tacky than dragging a list through a clothing store. Doing it in front of your half-empty closet helps you make wise and fashionable choices without any pressure. 

Save Money

Not only is shopping online more accessible, but it is cheaper. Hush Style has a range of women’s clothing and accessories heavily discounted. Don’t let the price fool you. The latest fashions can come cheap when they’re found online. Shopping online eliminates the pesky salesperson following you around with a sales pitch. There’s nothing worse than getting home and taking the tags off to realise you purchased something you really didn’t want or need. It’ll be like another one of those hideous fashion mistakes you just threw away. 

The closet clear-out can be a daunting task. Followed up with shopping, it is easy to come up with excuses to put it off. There’s a need to stay on-trend. The confidence that comes with the latest fashions can impact every area of your life. Cut the stress and expense of a wardrobe upgrade with online shopping. Don’t let the thought of sorting through things and shopping put you off.

The Ultimate Summer Fashion Guide for 2020

2020 has been one crazy year clouded by doom and gloom. We all would have reversed our calendars if we could, but unfortunately, we need to adjust ourselves to the new lifestyle in the post-covid19 world. The new lifestyle is all about minimalism and basics and that is what the 2020 summer fashion is primarily going to be about. 

 One of the best things about fashion is that it keeps you going. If you are feeling low and need a mood uplift, wearing a bright red lipstick or dying your hair neon can alone do wonders. Under such circumstances, dressing up and feeling good about yourself is the best gift that you can give to yourself to maintain sanity. Here is a quick round-up of what will rule the summer fashion circuit in 2020. 

Cotton All the Way

 If there is one thing that 2020 taught us, it is to the ability to manage with the basics and still being able to pull it off. Besides that, thanks to global warming, the summers are getting way too harsh to be able to wear anything other than cotton. That is especially true if you are residing in hot and humid climates. Light-colored breathable cotton tops can still make you feel like a Diva. A crisp white button-down cotton shirt should be a staple garment in everyone’s closet. Besides button-downs, cold shoulders, off-shoulders, crop tops, and other gazillion cuts can be tried on with trendy bottom assortments for a classy ensemble. 

Bottoms

Jeans are still not going anywhere. Therefore, you still do not have to spend your precious cash on new bottoms if you are still fitting in your existing pair of jeans. When picking jeans, go for cuts that are more breathable and comfy. Save those jeggings for winters. Besides the evergreen jeans, Skirts are going to be a huge hit this season. Flared cuts, straight cuts, long hems, short hems, side slits, no slits, whatever works for you. If paired right skirt brings in a lot of elegance and feminity to your wardrobe. 

Shoes

Nothing beats Sneakers and Fit Flops when it comes to footwear. Your shoes should not only be about style but also comfort and convenience and the Katter should come first. Those 4-inch high heel might look super-hot but it would be tough pushing your grocery cart when you are wearing that thing, and parties are going to be pretty toned down this summer, unfortunately. If you must wear heels, a pair or two of neutral kitten heels should suffice.

Bags

For years leather has ruled the bag market until canvas bags made an entry in late 2018. The trend slightly picked up in 2019, but many people were still reluctant to switch to an unconventional canvas bag when planning a casual outing. Then came 2020 and lives changed altogether. If you have not experimented with canvas bags yet, this is the best time to do so. Grab a canvas bag on your next grocery trip. They are cheap, practical, durable, and at the same time extremely trendy.

The Spring Guide to Men’s Shoes

If you’re like many others, you can’t wait for spring. Get ready now for the fast-approaching season when the snow melts, and you can wear an expanded selection of footwear for both indoor and outdoor events.
